Want to know what you do to keep fit. I lift weights 3x a week and cycle about 100-120km.

I am 44 yrs old and started cycling over 18 months ago and looking at continual improvement.

I recently joined a cycling club and realised how unfit I am compared to the regular riders.

Any advise would be welcome.

Turbo,

I commute ~40km/day Mon-Fri, Sat race, Sun ~80-100kms to recover. Gym 3 times per week stretching,
core stomach, weights for squats/lunges, light weight for upper body.

I am 45 and similarly, started racing. You could read books such as Cyclist Training Bible by Joe
Friel to improve your training. Persevere your fitness willl improve.

Cheers Kevin

Hi,

Which club have you joined and would you recommend it?

G'day mate. Umm... You think your'e unfit? You are getting more exercise than me, and many others, no doubt.

Continual improvement? I've been going downhill for many years.

Hey - Isn't this thread discriminatory? What about us 60 and 70 year olds?

Cheers.
Paul - Strictly tongue-in-cheek.
